Deputies Use SmartWater to Help Reunite Farmers with Stolen Equipment

Around 9:30 a.m. on  02-05-2020, TCSO Deputies were in the area of the 1300 block of N. Ash in Lindsay conducting an unrelated investigation when they found what appeared to be a stolen trailer.  

Upon further investigation, Deputies learned the trailer was recently reported stolen. It was given back to the victim undamaged.  

Deputies also found a welding trailer and quad off-road vehicle in the same area that were later determined to be stolen. That equipment had been marked with Smart Water, which enabled Deputies to find its rightful owner and return it. 

Anyone with information about this case should contact Detectives with the AG Crimes Unit or Sgt. Clower at the Tulare County Sheriff’s Office at 1-800-808-0488 or anonymously at tcso@tipnow.com or by text or voicemail at 559-725-4194.
